Butternut Squash Soup

This Butternut Squash Soup is so creamy and delicious! It has minimal ingredients and a bold flavor! It's the perfect combo deal! This recipe is one of my favorite soups ever! I make this soup in the Instant Pot for easy cooking and easy clean up! I love it and I think you will too! Make it with me!

You guys all know how much I love using my Instant Pot! One of the best things to make in the Instant Pot is soup! Not only will it heat the ingredients and give it a good flavor, but it also cooks ingredients like potatoes, squash, and meat. Don't have an Instant Pot yet? Shop the Instant Pot

I like to use pre cubed butternut squash to make this recipe even easier to throw together! You can use fresh or frozen cubes. I found mine a Smith's in the freezer section and at Costco. You can also cube the squash yourself if you want to go that route, it will just add an extra step.

I use my Immersion Hand Blender to make this soup creamy and smooth. I always use it when I am making soup! Here's the link to a similar one to mine. Hand Blender You can also place this mixture into your blender and blend it to get the same effect! 

You can make this recipe vegetarian by using Vegetable Broth instead of Chicken Broth! That's an easy substitute!
